I’ve finally gotten my hands on the Blu-Ray of “Child 44” (available everywhere by now) and have added over 1.000 high quality screencaptures to the photo gallery. The film is not as bad as the critical consensus has sounded, but if you have read the book you wonder why much of its potential has been wasted. Please be aware that the screencaptures contain major spoilers.
Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate have announced the details for the Blu-ray release of thriller Child 44. Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), the film stars Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Vincent Cassel, Jason Clarke and Joel Kinnaman and is set for release on August 4th in the States. Special Features will include a “Reflections of History” featurette. After a friendâ€™s son is found dead, Soviet secret-police officer Leo Demidov (Hardy) suspects his superiors are covering up the truth. When Leo dares to raise questions, he is demoted and exiled to a provincial outpost with his wife (Rapace). There, Leo soon discovers other mysterious deaths with similar circumstances and convinces his new boss (Oldman) that a deranged serial killer is on the loose-and must be stopped before he strikes again in this electrifying thriller.
